    831B Plan - Could be the Secret to Saving Your Business in Hard Times

    831B Plan - Could be the Secret to Saving Your Business in Hard Times

    There are many aspects of a business's ability to thrive that are predictable.   Just as in life, businesses can be negatively impacted by things that can't be predicted and even preventive.    There are legal documents like Buy-Sell Agreements, and insurance products like Key Man Insurance, and technology protocols like continuity and redundancy services.

    The 831(b) is little known tool that businesses can use to 'self-insure' with pre-tax dollars. Much like the 401(k) tax code allows an employer to set aside tax-deferred dollars for retirement, the 831(b) tax code allows a business to set aside tax-deferred dollars for underinsured and/or uninsured risks. The similarities are clear and business owners should consider the risk mitigation advantages, before the next pandemic, natural disaster, or global supply crisis.

    Ed Bryan of SRA 831(b) Admin joins Karen to discuss this critical, and little known, element of the tax codes that benefit businesses, large and small.   

    Ed Bryan has more than 20 years of sales and operations management experience with a consistent history of leading high-performing sales teams and operational excellence. As Director of Business Development, Ed leads the SRA team in partnering with clients and valued advisors to provide next-level strategies to business owners. http://831b.com

    Karen Rands advises angel investors on best practices for screening deals, conducting due diligence & creating a syndication to fully fund the company's round, when selecting private companies to invest in for large upside potential.   Entrepreneur business owners benefit from Karen's insights for growth strategies and access to capital through direct public offerings & investor syndication.

    Should you? Would you? Develop that App? with AJ Aluthwala

    The old, 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it'. isn't a good business strategy. Not 'fixing something in you business could mean that there are hidden expenses and inefficiencies that prevent you from growing at the pace you would like, and potentially create friction with your customers that effect retention.

    Wealth Creation Tips using Equity Crowd Funding - with Karen Rands

    Wealth Creation Tips using Equity Crowd Funding - with Karen Rands

    The Legalization of Equity Crowd Funding was the catalyst for the great Economic Democratization of the Capital Markets.  Although crowdfunding started with reward based, the advent of the JOBS Act in 2012 introduced 4 ways to raise equity capital from the crowd.  The expanded pool of additional investors are not your typical angel investors.  These 4 methods remove the invisible wall between entrepreneurs and their potential investors.  There is still great confusion on how to best use equity crowdfunding to raise capital, and even more so, how traditional retail stock investors can get involved in a low risk way and start investing in the entrepreneurs with 'unicorn potential' or the small business owners that are well established and are seeking an amount of growth capital that is not available from their bank and they don't fit a Venture Capitalist or Private Equity Fund criteria. They can be as solid of an investment as a retail stock, but with much greater upside potential.  The 4 methods to solicit from the general public, to crowd fund, are not created equal.  Each has it's unique benefits to entrepreneurs and investors. 

    Watch and Listen as Karen explains the difference in the 4 equity Crowd Funding, Direct Public Offering methods:  Intrastate Exemption (Reg D 504), Reg D 506c, Reg CF and Reg A+.

    Angel Investing –Who, What, & How to Make Millions Investing in Entrepreneurs

    In this segment of The Compassionate Capitalist Show(tm) Podcast, Karen Rands responds to an entrepreneur's question:  What is an Angel Investor?  Since 2012, the definition and the game to attract angel investors has changed.  Once considered only an activity available for an exclusive group of entrepreneurs turned investors, the access to capital and those who can invest in an entrepreneur's success to share that wealth all changed with the passage of the JOBS Act to stimulate the economy. Angel Investing is the 2nd best source for creating generational wealth, but less than 5% of the US public knows about it.

    Karen explains the history and evolution of angel investing and the good news: the wall between entrepreneurs and would-be investors has been removed, creating opportunity for financial success through entrepreneurism for the founders and the investors.

    Listen and learn the 4 ways entrepreneurs can solicit for investors from the general public of potential investors outside of the structured angel network funnel--- and the four easy ways ANYONE with disposable income and liquidity in their investment strategy can invest in entrepreneurs from startup to growth stage, in their community or thousands of miles away.   Karen also shares the emotional and financial benefits investors have shared with her when investing in cool innovation and brilliant entrepreneurs.

    In this very personal and direct video/podcast message, Karen Rands shares the financial and emotional benefits of being an Angel Investor -- whether you claim it as a Compassionate Capitalist, Silent Partner, Right Quadrant Business Owner & Investor, or Crowdfunding Investor.   

    Karen shares her 'aha moment' of realizing that 7 Million people in the USA collect a pay check that easily puts them into the income bracket to invest and own small amounts of other entrepreneurs' businesses in order to share in their financial success without all the risks of starting and owning that business themselves.   The average rate of return for the angel investor, that takes time to learn how to evaluate the merits of an entrepreneur's opportunity and develop a diversified portfolio, far exceeds that of real estate and the stock market. 

    Karen will be offering a special opportunity in June - Hump Month - for those investors who plan to invest in a private company this year.  To get details of the deal, Investors need to sign up for access to the ISAV Resource Portal and their free entry level membership in the National Network of Angel Investors by then.  Find the access code in her book Inside Secrets to Angel Investors.
